My wife had a Monte Cristo breakfast sandwich and I had a Breakfast Philly Cheesestake. We make better sandwiches at home but they were still good. What made the difference was the Home Fries. They were to die for. I wish I knew their secret!

I was in DC for business and a teacher friend checked to see if they could accommodate two of us with food allergies. They had no problem (I can't have wheat/flour, milk products or wine/sulfites; the other person in our party couldn't have gluten). We were seated promptly and our wonderful server, Jesse, took notes on the allergens, and made... More

It's just a nifty place. Not off the beaten path by any means, but the servers are great, the food is affordable and delicious, and the bar exceptional. Great for brunch or casual date night. Looks like a fun place to celebrate a birthday, too.

If you like starting your weekends on Thursday, the Mad Hatter is it! The Thursday special is $1 beers and the dance floor gets going by 11-11:30. Drinks were cheap and it's a fun atmosphere, particularly if you want to be around a younger crowd.

I went on a Tuesday at 4pm for happy hour. The place was easy to find and well marked on the outside. The inside was very nice and clean. There were very few customers at this time. It began to pickup around 6pm. The bartender was very responsive and exceptional nice. The beer selection is not extensive and definitely lacking... More

Friends and I happened upon this bar/restaurant while walking downtown. We sat outside and had an excellent dining experience! I ordered a halibut entrée..my friends ordered fish/chips, fish taco and a burger. While the food for the latter 3 was rather typical bar food, I had a excellent meal. The service was beyond expectation as was the wait staff sense... More

Me and my wife, ended up here to watch a basketball game and have a bite to eat. We had previously had brunch here with some friends so I knew the food would be a step above normal bar food. It is primarily a restaurant with a bar going down one side showing sports. The drinks call and well were... More

This was our first visit but won't be the last. The restaurant is lovely and I loved the Alice In Wonderland theme, the waiter was first class and very efficient, the food was yummy. They didn't have one of the desserts we ordered so they kindly gave us a free portion of one of the other desserts. We would definitely... More

I found Mad Hatter on a list of champagne brunches in the DC area. Mad Hatter offers $10 unlimited champagne and $12 unlimited mimosas. My friend and I both ordered the Eggs Chesapeake–two poached eggs with lump crab meat atop an English muffin, with hollandaise sauce and home fries. ($16) The crab meat was delicious but the rest of the... More
